Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud candidacy in the Teluk Intan is generating a lot of buzz even among UMNO members. She’s been likened to state of the art latest Samsung smartphone S5 while BN candidate Datuk Mah Siew Keong, 51 is like an old Nokia phone.

“When I woke up this morning, I saw five messages from a former Umno divisional secretary on my cellular telephone. One reads: “Dyana is said to be the latest state of the art Samsung 5s (sic) while Mah is Nokia. Sigh!” said former New Straits Times Editor Datuk Kadir Jasin.

Some Pakatan Rakyat leaders also touted Dyana’s candidacy as a severe blow to Barisan Nasional’s (BN) racial politics, many also trumpeted Dyana’s beauty to drum up support from the voters.

“We support Dyana not because of her beauty, but her principles,” PAS’ Datuk Husam Musa told the crowd of hundreds,

“But if she is not only principled, but pretty as well, that is a bonus,” he added followed by cheers from the crowd, with one man shouting “Itu lagi bagus!” (That is even better), it reports.
